Just 5 doors along from their house, Judy and David purchased land from a neighbour. They used it as a vegetable plot but their dream was to eventually use it to build their forever home.

The couple had always wanted to self-build but were quite daunted by the prospect, having watched programmes on TV where budgets escalate and builds go pear-shaped.

They were right to be concerned; their plot was situated next to a high flood risk area meaning their dream could be sunk before it even started.

After visiting the show home and learning that The Wee House Company would take care of everything; from their bespoke design service right through to completion of the build, Judy and David were sold.

 

“We had the most amazing experience from the moment we phoned to visit the show home to the official handover of our lovely Wee House. We went for a bespoke two bedroomed Wee House and are absolutely delighted with the finished house. No request, however large or small, was too much trouble and we have had a lot of fun along the way."

The Wee House Company arranged a topographical survey and found a cost effective way to alleviate the flood risk by raising the finished floor level of the house. David and Judy are delighted with their brand new forever home, commenting “Our Wee House is on a main road and has been seen by so many people and all the comments we have heard are really positive. One person drove past our site the day before the house went up and couldn’t believe that the next day, a house had suddenly appeared!”

The Wee House Company use a modular build process which means that homes are completed up to ceiling height before leaving the factory. They are delivered to the customer plot, by articulated lorry, already having been fitted with kitchen, bathrooms, electrical and plumbing circuits and having had their first coat of paint.

As the Wee House modules are at such an advanced stage of construction by the time they arrive at their destination the team are able to finish off the house promptly, making it wind and water tight within 24 hours.

“How I am going to miss the backwards and forwards emails between Jennifer and her team and us. The whole process, arriving to start the foundations was run with almost military precision and we can’t praise The Wee House Company highly enough for all they have done.

It felt like they were building a home for themselves, such was the attention to detail, rather than strangers they will probably never meet again.”
